Throws arms up in the air.
A week removed from what Cyclones’ manager Danny Nobbs called “the worst game I’ve ever coached,” Eastern View opened its Battlefield slate with a 40-0 victory.
“This may be the first time I’ve ever been embarrassed to win a game,” said Nobbs, who has led the Cyclones to four straight Battlefield District finals appearances.
...“We could just do no wrong, and they could do no right,” Nobbs said.
After scoring 14 runs and batting around twice in the first inning, Nobbs said he pulled the majority of his starters in the second with the Cyclones leading, 19-0.
But even with substitutes on the field, last season’s Battlefield runner-up totaled more than 21 hits and racked up 40 runs in just five innings without a single home run.
“We did everything we could to maintain the integrity of the game,” Nobbs said. “We didn’t take extra bases, and we didn’t try to run the score up. It kind of felt like we were doing something wrong even though we weren’t. It was kind of like going into a fight with a guy you’re twice the size of and you know you’re going to pummel.”
